Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This thesis aims to contribute to expanding knowledge about self-regulation in the writing, and its relations with Motivation. Thus, the overall objectives of the study are: a) characterize the sample of students in terms of self-regulation in writing and Motivation (this variable is operationalized in this study through self-efficacy in Portuguese and objectives of performance); b) to study how the Self-Regulation Strategies in Writing and Motivation vary according to social demographic variables, c) verify whether and how the self-regulation strategies in writing and motivation are related. The study included 726 students from the 3rd cycle of elementary education. These were the instruments used for assessment: a) social demographic questionnaire; b) Scale of Self-Regulation Strategies and Writing (Oliveira & Dias, in press); c) Academic Self-Efficacy Scale (Neves & Faria, 2005) and; d) the Questionnaire of Performance Objectives (Gonçalves, Lemos & Rodrigues, 2008). The main results of the study allowed us to verify that the self-regulation strategies in writing are positively related to motivation. In other words, greater self-regulation strategies in writing are associated with greater self-efficacy in Portuguese and higher goals for mastery and performance.
